Geoscience Australia has produced a common and repeatable application for the management and dissemination of elevation data and products. This application can be viewed at http://www.ga.gov.au/elvis/.
A collaborative project between Geoscience Australia and NSW Spatial Services, delivered a capability for NSW to also manage and disseminate their elevation data through the re-utilisation and re-skinning of Geoscience Australias ELVIS application.
Build Jurisdiction Dissemination infrastructure
The current focus for infrastructure development is directed at metadata management systems as well as raster dissemination infrastructures.
Australia's future safety, prosperity and sustainability depends on making informed policy and investment decisions that meet the needs of today, and the decades ahead. Digital elevation data which describes Australia's landforms and seabed is crucial for addressing issues relating to the impacts of climate change, disaster management, water security, environmental management, urban planning and infrastructure design. Geoscience Australia is working collaboratively across all levels of government, industry and academia to ensure decision makers, investors and communities have access to the best available elevation data to meet local, regional and national needs.
ELVIS (Enhanced Location Value InfrastructureS)
Ensuring decision makers, investors and the community have access to the best available elevation data describing Australia's landforms and sea bed to address the needs of today and the decades ahead.
